Say A Prayer

You can move on You can see the light of day But you've left me behind Behind in this endless night You can be strong Invincible Indomitable A cherished hero Unaffected…. But you've left me defenseless Weak Paralyzed by fear You can go about Your daily life Taking the whole world in your stride Yet you’ve left me in my room A prisoner in these four walls Afraid of a world I can’t understand Unable to reach out You can bind up your wounds Stanch the flow And continue with the fight for life Undeterred The taste of victory in your mouth Your rebel yell Sounding a warning A swashbuckling warrior And I lie in the trenches Watching the flow Of my life Ebbing away Waiting to be rescued Wondering if I will make it To another day You and Me Two different people From two different worlds Yet part of the human race In need of grace Remember me…. When you turn your face to the sun And feel the breeze on your face Remember me... Alone in my room Closed in by the gloom Tears drenching me Hurts haunting me Remember me…. And say a prayer… Say a prayer For me. Eileen Manassian Ghali

I will pray and celebrate your strength for you are the warrior queen and do not require a meer man to rescue you. The only hand you need to reach for is that of our savior and stare deeply into his loving eyes as he places you upon solid ground.

Thanks, Richard. Bless your heart for saying that. I had a blessed day yesterday at a Women's Retreat sponsored by our church. I was one of the speakers and I had to speak about some of my favorite verses in the Bible.....Habbakuk 3: 17 - 19. Usually who I have to lead out, the message is something that is for ME most of all. Bless you! The Lord is GOOD!

Pray my dear Eileen and God within will raise you up to your feet! As a friend I have this to say:"I am the tear of joy, That to replace comes your Suffering’s tear!" Impressive, harmonious, marvelously written dramatic monologue! God bless you!

You are such a kind soul, Eileen. I know that sometimes that kindness can work against you...as far as feeling things so deeply...so cutting. I love your work and like I said before, here's a shoulder for you. P.S. Love the rebel yell part...;)

Drake...I guess I will take this nature of mine to the grave with me. I'm glad my family have come to terms with my sensitivity..honestly...sometimes we don't know how close to the edge some people are...and words can sometimes just tip them over! Don't worry, my dear friend. I've passed through a tough patch...I'm on the mend. Hugs!

Many suffer this form of domination and mental incarceration, it is difficult to escape when you have nowhere else to go. Another slice of life from your pen. Take care Richard
